- Internationally Respected Curricula
Our schools offer rigorous, internationally-recognised curricula and qualifications including the English National Curriculum and International Baccalaureate. We believe that this provides your child with a global education passport, equipping them to study anywhere in the world.
Each school also adapts the curricula to embrace local culture and conditions. For example, our schools in China provide opportunities for students to learn Mandarin and understand the Chinese culture as a part of their studies. Collège Champittet in Switzerland offers a bilingual curriculum in French and English.
See our Parents' Guide to Education Terminology for more information about commonly used terms in international schools.

A number of our schools offer the Primary Years Programme and Middle Years Programme, and most of our schools offer the rigorous International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme for 16 – 19 year olds.
